Here at YES @ Areté Learning Trust we strive to promote an understanding of Specific Learning Differences in order to support students/pupils, parents and professionals.

 

We focus on:

  • the early identification of children and young people’s needs and early intervention to support them.
  • the development of inclusive practice in order to remove
  • barriers to learning.
  • the provision of high-quality training.

 

We offer:

  • support with developing inclusive practice in different settings.
  • solution focused meetings with school staff, parents and
  • pupils to identify barriers to learning.
  • analysis of current provision focusing on impact, individual
  • pupil assessment with comprehensive reporting.
  • support with planning and the delivery of personalised
  • literacy and numeracy programmes.
  • progress reviews in person or by telephone.
  • access arrangements for external exams for KS4 and KS5.

 

We believe that the relationship between schools, professionals and parents is incredibly important, which is why we promote a ‘Parents as Partners’ ethos.

The SEND Code of Practice places great importance on involving parents and children in identifying, understanding and taking decisions about special educational needs. We work with parents, recognising the importance of neurodiversity, to create unique pupil profiles.

For parents be at the heart of decision making about their child, it is helpful for them to be fully informed about their child’s needs.

We liaise with a number of parents support group and offer:

  • bespoke support.
  • workshops, meetings and specialist information sharing.
  • reduced rates on all our training events for parents/carers.
